We are a multiple award winning charity recognised for rendering childcare services in Southwark.

CASP was founded by parents as a community project, 33 years ago. Our mission: to support local parents by providing good quality, affordable out of school child care. Today CASP is a registered charity, a company limited by guarantee and an OFSTED registered childcare provider. Our growth has come with a wider community responsibility - we now offer a range of childcare services and also periodically deliver partner programmes targeted at youth and adults.

We operate across 2 sites, both in areas of Southwark characterised by the associated factors of social deprivation, unemployment and isolated single parent families. CASP employs over 20 part-time staff and volunteers, and looks after about 100 children per week. We provide safe, satisfying group play and supplementary learning experience to advance the development of children. In addition, CASP supports parent's access to the workforce, and meet the childcare needs of those already in work, by providing good quality, affordable out of school childcare services; helping to build strong, and more sustainable, families and communities. Last but not least, we work closely with other organisations to develop specialist services for specific needs, such as our Young Achiever and GROW programmes to alleviate youth violence and unemployment, respectively.

Our charity has helped shape childcare policy through numerous government consultations. Thousands of children in Southwark and neighbouring areas have been kept safe from harm and mischief, from being "latchkey" children, giving several disadvantaged children the platform they need to go on and achieve their full potential. Parents of children from some of London's poorest communities have been able to secure employment, enabling them to make positive contributions to the local economy.
